Hey guys. So this is my first build log. It's also my first Case Mod and first Loop. I've been planning on starting this build log for a while but have changed my mind so many times on how I'm gonna put it all together. I basically bought my HAF XB back in late May or Early June, it was originally gonna be a Haswell build but i decided to wait for IB-E. Then when IB-E released, I had the 290x and RIVE BE right around the corner so more waiting......
In the mean time, my plans for my mod and custom loop have changed soooooo many times.
RIVE BE (Purchased)

3 x AMD r9 290x's (1 bought. 2 to go...)

SSD's - 2 x Samsung EVO 250GB in Raid0 (1 bought. 1 to go...)

Either Dual 35x's or Dual Aquacomputer D5's. Dunno if i can make the room for the D5's with all my other mods
Decided to give acrylic a shot for my tubing. Haven't ordered anything for it yet.
Undecided on Coolant/Dye
Also considering either trying to fit 1 or 2 short Aqualis Reservoirs (Vertical) or FrozenQ Tri-Spirals (Horizontal)
I'll be painting my rig White as the main color with Red as a 2nd color. Undecided if I'll use a 3rd color and if that 3rd color would be Gray/Silver or Black
This is roughly what it should look like from the front when I'm done.
Except I plan on putting a MNPCTech Overkill 3D Grill on the front of the shroud, and the fans will be red with red LED's.
I already have like the next 10 pages of update pics already taken. I have a TON of pics in a folder dedicated to this build. I just gotta sort through and choose the best ones so bear with me guys
